  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d4 + 4) slashing damage. If the target is a Large or smaller creature, it is grappled (escape DC 13). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the bat can’t use its claws against another target.

About

Giant albino bats grow to staggering proportions. These bats are marked by the demon lord of bats and aren’t simple animals. They gather large gaggles of giant bats and swarms of common bats, claiming swaths of wilderness for their territories.
